Are you lapsing into bad habits?
As time grinds on in this crappy economy, all of this can get old old old. We are only human! Well,YOU are only human. I, naturally, am perfect.
CareerBuilder reminds even us perfect types not to succumb to negativity. Even if you try to fake it, your ennui will seep through.
You may think you are good at shooting the breeze--but in an interview, this is not enough--look up the company!
Don't quick text or IM a potential employer. Too flippant.
And don't toot your own horn too much--you will come off as arrogant and hard to work with.
And when was the last time you overhauled your resume? You should do this every so often--at least it will remind you of what you have to offer.
Four million people have been unemployed more than six months. It is really a skill to kickstart yourself--but you need to.
